Fieri on flavor and facts for writing (295 out of 365) #blogaday

This post shows that you can pull educational information out of many TV shows if you are looking for it. I was drawn to this one because I love “Diners, drive-ins, and dives”. I noticed his style of speaking after a few episodes since it is quite distinct, but tying into the writing process and tone of voice is very interesting!

All Hail Halloween (294 out of 365) #blogaday

Tomorrow will be the first Halloween event I have experienced in a school setting as a teacher! Our center is holding a “sticker treat,” in which families are coming to walk their kids from room to room in order to get Halloween-themed stickers – the children and some teachers will be in their costumes. I am not really sure if the whole day will be different, or just parts of it. The event states “all day,” but I have no sense about the setup for teachers and if students might be coming and going throughout the day (or if it won’t change much besides many people in costumes). I guess we will see what the day brings! halloween post

Smooth sailing (293 out of 365) #blogaday

Teaching can be tough, so it is always important to remember the happy and successful days. Today was one of the days – we had a great time creating wreaths, and everyone helped each other out with ripping the tissue paper and spelling names. Naptime went smoothly (even though only a few friends were asleep) because the children were calm on their mats with puzzles and coloring. AND we had a new girl tour the room who loved it and her mom signed her up to start next week! The rest of this week should be fun since it is a Halloween sticker treat on Friday, and I have an earlier shift tomorrow which will make a difference with when I handle certain situations. Hurray to a good middle of the week!

Wreaths with wrapping (291 out of 365) #blogaday

At the end of my shift, I collected tissue paper in Fall colors and paper plates. The children are going to make wreaths tomorrow for Thanksgiving or just as decoration – it will help them with motor skills, and precision for ripping and sticking on the tissue wrapping paper. These will look very nice up in our classroom for the Fall season! I really hope the children are as into it as I am 🙂
